Re: Spring at the Morgan's too!

Alright...since I planted my first Joe Pye Weed last year...what is the
treatment for scale and mealy bugs just in case I need to know?

Bonnie-joe Pye weed likes plenty of sun and lots of water so I don't
know if<br>it will go well with the Hydrangea since they prefer some
shade. It will do<br>kind of so so for the first year them watch out! It
gets huge, and sets lots<br>of seeds. It also gets scale and mealy bugs.
Just FYI. but the butterflies<br>do go nuts for it and it rapidly
reproduces.<br><br>Andrea H<br>Beaufort, SC<br><br><br>----- Original
